Basement Plumbing Tips
- Proper maintenance of the sump pump and basement floor drain will ensure that you don’t need to call for repairs. Test the sump pump every few months especially before the rainy season begins. You can test this by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. This should automatically turn the machine on, pump the water dry and turn off. If it doesn’t work, then it needs to be repaired by a professional.
- Your basement floor drain does not get used that often, it is imperative to keep the trap seal beneath it full of water manually. If in case the trap seal isn’t full, it could allow sewer gases into your basement. Remember to pour a bucket of water down the drain every once in a while.
